“Everyone poops—yes, it’s true—from aardvarks to the humped zebu.” Artie Bennett, author of the award-winning and much-acclaimed The Butt Book, delivers the inside scoop on every type and use of poop in his “number two,” spanking-new picture book, Poopendous! In hilarious verses, with eye-popping illustrations, Poopendous! relates the many, often remarkable uses of poop throughout the world while paying homage to its prolific producers, from cats to bats to wombats! Virtuoso illustrator Mike Moran gives us a veritable Noah's Ark of critters doing their less-than-solemn doody. So pick up your pooper-scooper and come along for a riotously rib-tickling ride. You just may agree that poop is truly quite . . . poopendous! As Artie Bennett says, “Now that The Butt Book was out and selling like hotcakes, I cast about for the perfect follow-up and I thought that, perhaps, a children’s book in verse about poop would be the ticket. In fact, what more fertile topic could there be for one’s ‘number two’ picture book. And when the word ‘poopendous’ came to me out of the blue, I knew I had both the title and the final spread for my next book. Curiously, just like with The Butt Book, I now sat down to write a memorable, rousing ending first before working my way back through the manuscript.” The Butt Book, which came out in 2010, illustrated by the superb scratchboard artist Mike Lester, was a runaway hit. The initial print run sold out in its first two months, and it was showered with praise (“Uproariously funny” –The Children’s and Teens’ Book Connection; “Its clever rhymes and Mike Lester’s bold and beautiful images make it an instant hit!” –Teach with Picture Books; The Butt Book is one of those books that is a delight for both the child and the parent” –BSC Kids; “A hilarious rhyming tribute to our bottom end” –A Cozy Reader’s Corner). It became a must-read for countless parents and children, as it gently and comically imparted an anatomy lesson. Teachers and librarians found it hysterically funny—and educational to boot. It was described as a "gateway book," one that shows youngsters how much fun a book can be. Educators proclaimed that a book like The Butt Book can spur a lifelong love of reading. And now comes Poopendous! Let the merriment continue. Visit ArtieBennett.com for even more of the scoop on poop—and a free educator’s guide—as well as some fun butt-related stuff, including some fascinating butt trivia, words for the butt, even a classic butt joke.
